Ok hotel, nice location. Check in was fast, breakfast and room was ok. Reception was not very friendly nor knowledgeable about surrounding attractions. Gym was a disappointment. Location was interesting, near heritage roads. Mall nearby.

(Translated by Google) Some small flaws in the room (a light that flashes at night is annoying), "compound view" = view of a wall but ideal location in front of Jalan Carpenter (old Chinatown) swimming pool and superb view, royal breakfast (excellent Sarawak Laksa ) although a bit pricey. A very good choice overall. (Original) Quelques petits défauts dans la chambre (une lumière qui flash la nuit c'est emmerdant) , "compound view" = vue sur un mur mais emplacement idéal devant Jalan Carpenter (old Chinatown) piscine et vue superbe, petit déjeuner royal (excellent Sarawak Laksa) bien qu'un peu cher. Un très bon choix dans l'ensemble.

We arrived at night but no bellboy helped us with our bags although we see 3 guys just sitting around chatting outside that looked like bag porters. Rooms are big and spacious but quite bare minimum. Only 1 floor bath matt and 2 bath towels, no face or hand towels. There is basic toiletries but sub par quality. Floor, toilet was dirty with stains and hairs. The shower pipe was really dirty, mouldy and disgusting. Such a dissapointment for this hotel. Nice that the hotel is directly connected to a shopping mall with a supermarket and pharmacies. No weighing scale although my last stay last month there was a scale buy it did not work. Room service food was not great, not fresh, bland and expensive. Better off ordering from food panda or grab. Location wise it is great, with nice river views and city views. Lots of eateries around the area. Nice hotel but cleanliness might be an issue for some.

(Translated by Google) If you have a little more in your wallet, you may try the sensation of staying at this hotel, if you have problems with the rooms, facilities and services, you can't doubt them, just top... (Original) Kalau isi dompet agak lebih, bolehlah mencoba sensasi menginap di hotel ini, kalau masalah kamar, fasilitas dan layanannya sudah tidak diragukan lagi, pokoknya top deh ...

"Convenient Location ” This hotel is in a very convenient location. It is right on top of a mall. You can have many choices to eat. The room is of a good size but it looks a bit old with some of the items not working properly. There was a problem with the toilet bowl but they came to fix it immediately. The safe and the telephone in the room were spoilt but we just lived with it. Overall it is still very convenient to stay here. The staff at the reception counter is very friendly too.

"Great pool for kids” Fantastic pool for kids with great view on 4th floor. Great location near the waterfront area. Hotel is connected to a shopping mall with many food options including a local food court.
